    Dr. Christiane Northrup - Glorious Women Never Age! Dr. Northrup has always counseled that health isn't just for the young. Now, in response to thousands of requests from readers, radio show listeners, lecture attendees, and fans from all over the world, she has turned her attention to the subject of women and aging - and once again, proves to be a fearless thinker, pioneer and author whose work is always based on impeccable research.
    In her newest PBS special, Christiane Northrup, M.D. visionary pioneer and one of the world's leading authorities in the field of women's health and wellness, takes on the topic of "aging" - and turns it on its head! She challenges the most popular but least helpful perspectives on women's "aging," replacing the notion of decline and decrepitude with the profound understanding that growing older means an increase in wisdom and value. Dr. Northrup skillfully collects and interprets research from astronaut studies, eldercare, the fields of sexuality, orthopedics and other areas, and combines them with her own clinical and life experience. The result is 7 Steps that every woman should take in her journey to getting older - without aging. The special was taped at Boston's Calderwood Pavilion, in front of an audience of wildly enthusiastic Northrup fans!

    Fear Cure with Lissa Rankin, M.D. "As a culture, we are so scared, we're not just making ourselves miserable; we're making ourselves sick. . . . By all measures, we are the healthiest, smartest, richest, safest people in human history. And yet, we have never been more afraid."
    In a program shot before a live audience, Dr. Lissa Rankin addresses how being afraid can make us sick - but the truth is that fear, left untreated, becomes a serious risk factor for conditions from heart disease to diabetes to cancer. Now she explains why we need to heal ourselves from the fear that puts our health at risk and robs our lives of joy - and shows us how fear can ultimately cure us by opening our eyes to all that needs healing in our lives. Drawing on peer-reviewed studies and powerful true stories, the program presents a breakthrough understanding of fear's effects and charts a path back to wellness and wholeness on every level.

    Deepak Chopra: The Future of God Faith meets science in this thought-provoking program in which world renowned spiritual teacher and medical doctor Deepak Chopra demonstrates that the tools of our most advanced fields of science can be used to answer some of these fundamentally spiritual questions. Most importantly, Dr. Chopra will argue that Religion and Science, when understood at the highest levels, do not contradict each other and, in fact, actually complement each other.
    Dr. Chopra argues that even those of us brought up in a largely secular, materialistic world, without a devout connection to a religious tradition, can still have a more productive vital life, and a greater sense of well-being and happiness, if we gain a more intimate and powerful connection to the Divine Wisdom of the ages. By combining science, history and philosophy, as only Deepak Chopra can, he delivers a program that embodies and celebrates so much of what is central to the mission of public television: an ongoing, curious and engaging, quest into what it means to be human.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    ImageMakers [#1303H] The Animation of Imagination THE LOST THING (Australia) - A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle caps one day at the beach. Realizing it is lost, he tries to find out where it belongs, but everyone else is too busy or wrapped up in their own lives to care. The boy decides it is up to him to find its home. The surreal animation comes from the mind of children's book writer Shaun Tan. A beautiful allegory exploring how we take for granted the world around us and how we ourselves at times feel like we don't belong.
    FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MORRIS LESSMORE (US) - Inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina (the filmmakers are based in Louisiana), Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, "Morris Lessmore" is a story of people who devote their lives to books. The film is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of reading. The film uses a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.
